(A) 7

(C) 9
(D) 10
(E) 11


\(\frac{7x^2 + 28x + 28}{(x + 2)^2} = \frac{7(x^2 + 4x + 4)}{(x + 2)^2}\)

\(= \frac{7(x + 2)^2}{(x + 2)^2}\)

\(= 7\)

Answer: A

Another approach:

Plug in a nice value for x and evaluate the expression.
A super nice x-value is x = 0

We get: \(\frac{7(0^2) + 28(0) + 28}{(0 + 2)^2} = \frac{28}{2^2}\)

\(= \frac{28}{4}\)

\(= 7\)

Answer:
still A :-)
